Developing Culture Mile as a global hub of creativity, innovation and learning that delivers economic growth and social mobility for London.
'Fuelling Creative Renewal' is a report by the Culture & Commerce Taskforce that sets out a blueprint for a deeper relationship between the creative and business sectors to accelerate London's recovery from the pandemic.
Chaired by the Lord Mayor in partnership with the City of London Corporation and Culture Mile, the Culture & Commerce Taskforce assembles leading figures from across the capital to address the massive challenges faced by the cultural and creative industries in the City, and London more widely, through better connecting the cultural and commercial sectors. Find about the members of the Culture & Commerce Taskforce.
The Culture & Commerce Taskforce believes that by coming together, culture and commerce can develop new ways of collaborating, to build a renewed creative sector that drives economic growth and supports competitive advantage for the City and London.
You can watch the Fuelling Creative Renewal report launch event and its roundtable below:
Culture & Commerce: Fuelling Creative Renewal outlines three key recommendations and 10 proposed projects where culture and commerce can work together for mutual benefit. Working together will accelerate London’s post-pandemic recovery and help secure its position as one of the best international cities in which to live, work, visit and invest.
The Taskforce seeks partners from across London who are able to contribute to the delivery and potentially take on a leadership role in progressing one or more of the ten projects.

Culture Mile brought together leaders from across the cultural, commercial and civic sectors for an event hosted by the Lord Mayor at Mansion House on 10 March 2020 as part of his Global UK programme. The event explored the critical role that creativity plays in key issues facing businesses across the City of London.
At the event, we shared our plan to establish the Culture Mile Taskforce – a group of senior leaders from across the City exploring how we can work across the cultural, commercial and civic sectors to harness the power of creativity to develop a welcoming, creative and thriving Culture Mile community. As a result of COVID-19, the terms of reference for this group are in the process of being revised and will be shared shortly.
